Death Can Catch You Anywhere, Anytime

IF I DIE is a unique Facebook app that enables people to leave a message that will leave a message that will only be published after they die. To get the word out on this unique service (since nobody thinks they will die anytime soon), the agency involved used APIs from popular location based services such as Foursquare and combined with Twitter searches for "Facebook Places" to track thousands of check-ins worldwide. With this information, they knew where someone was in real time and could communicate the message to the person in context to his/her location (the message being "Death can catch you anywhere, anytime, even at [Your current location]). A morbid but interesting execution which I think can be used in spirit for some pretty interesting brand campaigns leveraging on people's real time locations.

Fiat Street Evo

Love this idea of turning street signs into QR codes that each sell a feature of the new Fiat Punto Evo and leveraging on a piece of technology to create a more engaging experience to what could have possibly been just a car catalog

A great infographic, especially for client side marketers to understand the true cost of leveraging on Social Media. Yes most social media tools are free, but social media marketing takes a lot of effort and resources to do well.

Axe Multiple Girlfriends App

I like that this is a really simple app delivered based on an interesting consumer insight that generated enough social currency (buzz, viral lift or whatever else you want to call it) to spread through people's social networks via Facebook.
